To be held April 6, 7, 13, 14 and 28 in the Wilkinson Student Center

In keeping with its annual tradition, Brigham Young University will host Passover Seder Services April 6, 7, 13, 14 and 28 in the Wilkinson Student Center.

Tickets will go on sale Thursday, Feb. 15 in 271 Joseph Smith Building. Admission will be $25 for the public and $17 for current BYU students, faculty and staff.

The services will run from 6:30 to 10 p.m. in 3228 WSC, with the exception of the April 6 service, which will take place in 3280-3290 WSC. The seder service will include unleavened bread, the bitter herbs and other traditions of Passover, accompanied by a commentary from Victor L. Ludlow, BYU professor of ancient scripture, who conducts the annual event.

In addition, Ludlow will host a Passover Seder Service Workshop Saturday, March 10, for those interested in learning more about the Passover or conducting services of their own. The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. in 3228 WSC and admission will be $10, which includes a luncheon. Tickets will go on sale Feb. 15 and will be available in 271 Joseph Smith Building.

BYU holds the Passover services to enrich the community’s appreciation of the Old Testament and the modern Jewish celebration honoring the flight of Israel from Egypt. The experience aids in making strong connections between the Old and New Testaments and understanding ancient traditions.
